In settings for media gallery in configuration tab it's possible to specified FULL Html format for text. The problem and I don't know if it's a bug or by design, when you create or edit a gallery it's not possible to have by exemple Wysiwig with TinyMCE. You have to input the full code manually. It would be nice to be able to use the input format setting for the main core who is normally available when creating a blog or article node. Even if you go to structure for the content type gallery we are not able to modified the gallery description field, it says it's lock !

Title: Support for other format of the description » Add text format support to the media gallery description field
Category: bug » feature

Seems like it would be reasonable to set up this field so that it uses text formats, yes. I can't think of any downsides.

Even if you go to structure for the content type gallery we are not able to modified the gallery description field, it says it's lock !

Some of the fields have to be locked because it would break the module if someone removed them or changed them in certain ways. It would be really nice if we could "partially" lock them (rather than lock them completely) but I don't think there is a simple way to do that (it would be great if someone could prove me wrong though).

By the way, as described at, one way to work around this limitation for now would just be to add your own custom field to gallery nodes (separate from the description field), and use that one instead.

Yes this is what I did because the actuall body cannot make it. I also agree with you on unlock some fields so that way we can configure them.

Patch attached for this.

David_Rothstein’s picture

The update function looks potentially dangerous... what text format will the content get after update? It seems like it could break existing formatting.

We could partially mitigate that problem by forcing existing content to be assigned the site's fallback format (a.k.a. usually plain text) after the update... But I'm not sure if that's easy to do.

Ah, right, when you view the description after the update it actually will fall back to plain text (since the format is stored as NULL in the database).

The bug I'm thinking of is actually when you go to edit the description for the first time after the update; there, the wrong format will be selected by default (plain text won't be selected, but rather the user's personal default). But that's not quite as serious and really more of a general bug for Drupal core to deal with, in cases where text formats are switched on for a field that's already in use. So this patch seems like it will be good as is.
